Manga creator Takehiko Inoue (Vagabond, Slam Dunk, Real) personally appears on camera in a set of television commercials for Nissin's Cup Noodles instant ramen. In the "Musashi Tōjō" ("Musashi Appears") ads, Inoue draws a painting of Musashi, the main character of his Vagabond samurai manga, on a giant (3-meter by 1.7-meter or about 10-foot by 6-foot) canvas. Inoue also narrates the commercials, which end with the message, "In this country, there is untapped strength."
